Thread Name: Jamaican Songs About The River Jordan
Subject: RE: Jamaican Songs About The River Jordan
Greetngs, Gibb and thanks for your comment.

The primary purpose of my Pancocojams blog-and my Cocojams and Jambalayah websites-is to raise awareness of various examples of African American, African, and other African Diaspora music & dance forms. Particularly on Pancocojams, I feature an eclectic mix of music & dance forms from the USA and other parts of the world. I don't purport to be an expert or even a very knowledgeable about any of those music genres & dance forms on that blog or on my websites.

In addition to raising awareness of those specific music/dance examples and their music genres, if known, my goal for that blog & those websites, and my goal for this Mudcat thread is to encourage persons who are experts and are very knowledgeable about those examples & genres to add online information (including correct lyrics), sound files and/or videos.

That said, with regard to those Jamaican river Jordan examples I should have been clearer that I am uncertain about their genre of music. I will correct that.

And as to your desire that I not quote your comments about the musical style of Clancy Eccles' song, I won't do so.

However, given your transcription suggestions, I intend to add an update in the body of that post that includes those lyrics of Clancy Eccles' song. I'll credit those suggested lyric transcriptions to your Mudcat screen name. However, I'm able to change that attribution if you prefer that I credit those amended transcriptions to "Anonymous" or some other name.

Prior to your comment on this thread, I intended to add a comment to both Part I and Part II of those particular posts that lets readers there know about this Mudcat thread. I still intend to do that.

Therefore, please be aware that people who read one or both of those Pancocojams Jamaican Songs About The River Jordan posts may also read your entire comment/s, and they may also read any other comment that is written on this Mudcat thread.

Thanks again, Gibb.

Best wishes,

Azizi Powell
